Subject: Great documentary, long life to the Amiga
I owned an A500 back in Spain. In its heyday, the Amiga commanded a type of "cult following" that makes the Apple/Mac following insignificant. My A500 was so ahead of every other computer owned by my friends, specially in the sound and graphics department, that I had a sense of "being chosen by God" to own the Amiga. I think it's fair to say that during the late 80's, early 90's the Amiga was treated in several European as the "cool" alternative to the IBM PC. Pretty much as the Mac is treated today in the US but with the caveat that the Amiga was during that time so ahead of both the PC and the Mac that it made us, the Amiga owners, look down at ever other personal computer owner which didn't own an Amiga. The thinking was, how is that these guys are not as amazed as I am with the technical superiority of this machine?
I moved to the US 7 years ago and I discovered these archives of the Computer Chronicles just this weekend. It has been a great experience to watch all 5 programs that cover the Amiga in detail. I moved to the Wintel PC forced by the market in the mid nineties, but no matter how technologically advanced the PC and the Mac become, the Amiga has a place in my heart that will never be replaced by any other computer.
